Another remarkable technological feat from Weyland scientists, the Synapse Reestablisher, through precise, minute electrical innervation, awakens dormant neurons in the brain tissue of deceased or dying patients. This delicate technology is highly sensitive and restricted to a select group of doctors and scientists. The 9 existing Reestablishers have been in use for the past 2 years in medical schools and biotech research centers for experimental use only, pending FDA investigation.
- In Prometheus, doctors Elizabeth Shaw and Ford used a Synapse Reestablisher on the preserved head of an Engineer. While it was succeeding in reviving the head at first, it backfires shortly after and causes the Engineer's head to explode.
